Had an email this afternoon...
Good afternoon

I was wondering if you might be able to help me…

I work for a group of schools across the South East – GLF Schools. I work in the central team based in Surrey and help source teachers and support staff for all the current 30 schools in our Trust.

Unfortunately, one of the caretakers in our Caterham cluster has had an accident and will be off for the next few months.

We are trying our best to avoid agency fees to help fill the gap. Is there any way you can circulate this role to your network? It would be part time, around 3 or 4 days a week, and ideally we would have somebody with experience in looking after swimming pools.

I would be really grateful for anything you can do to help.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in contact by emailing back or dropping me a text on 07715 207996

Have a great weekend

Gone are the days of Mobile Caretakers who would open up, tidy up & lock up.

Would happily help out as it is very near to me. But that amount of time is impossible. Working full time here would only give me shattered fatigue trying to help out elsewhere. Plus no swimming pool experience either [Scared.png]
Best of luck though and I hope you get it sorted.
wake me up before you gogo.

Well perhaps this trust that covers 30? should employ a full time mobile caretaker or two, then this sort of thing would not happen, I am sure there is enough money in the pot from 30? trust schools to adopt this and not come cap in hand to the caretakers website, there must be another ploy to this, perhaps at some stage all caretakers at these trust schools will be on ZERO hours contracts other 3/4 days a week to save more money and pay there C.E.OS, H.Ts and B.Ms more salaries. But fairs fair at least they asked nicely, Beware Greeks (I know its the southeast!) bearing gifts I have always been told, had my say, and good luck to all parties. [Neutral.png]

Would like to help but I am already working a lot of extra hours where I am. Sadly pretty much all schools here are one man bands now as there is no money for assistants. A few years ago it might have been a different story.

I don't know if there are any local secondary schools that could help? When I worked in a large team at one we often used to lend someone out to primaries who had someone off long term etc. They did reverse that policy though when two of the guys were offered permanent jobs and jumped ship.
